Earl’s music has inspired countless fans across the world and his iconic legacy will live on forever. We appreciate all the love and support during this incredibly difficult time. “
Ahead of the news of the rhymer’s death on April 9, reports surfaced online of X’s failing health, saying he was on life support and was “brain dead” or in a state of death. “Vegetative state”. Amid the news of the beloved MC’s hospitalization, conflicting reports began to emerge on the internet. DMX for a long time Lawyer Murray Richman told PIX11 News from New York that X was unsupported and was breathing on his own. Richman later clarified to Rolling stone that he had been misinformed.
The New York native was treated at White Plains Hospital where he underwent brain function tests on April 7 to determine if there had been any improvements in his brain activity. However, doctors are said to have said that X’s prognosis remains bleak.
Hip hop still suffers from this immense loss.
